TTW Belfast Gingeroot 1

Written by WILL MARTIN

If you find yourself in Belfast and say the word ‘curry’, presumably you’ll be led by the hand to the capital’s premium Indian curry house, Gingeroot. But beware, this place is in high demand and booking is essential.

This family-run restaurant is Great Victoria Street’s curry factory. Set in clean surroundings, the food is as varied and exciting as India’s countryside. If you’re not picky, bank on the Gingeroot Special: a selection of chicken pakora, seek kebab, and chicken and lamb tikka. Or start with a king prawn puri – a succulent, prawn cocktail of mild and sweet spices served on a fried flatbread.

For vegetarians, the menu is extensive, taking advantage of India’s rich vegetable heritage, with the vegetable pakora and paneer pakora – the latter made from home-made cottage cheese, marinated in spices and deep-fried in gram flour – proving the most spectacular.

For your main, why not try the salmon fish curry – quite simply salmon marinated in spices and served with fresh naan bread and pilau rice. The chef’s recommendation is the Moghlai chicken, an ‘authentic’ dish made with tender pieces of chicken, lamb mince meat and egg.
